This paper examines Soviet combat engineer equipment, organization and tactical groupings, staff procedures, and support to defensive, offensive, movement and river crossing operations. Types of engineer equipment are reviewed and briefly described. Organizational tables are adapted from accepted U.S. sources and improved to provide additional detail and conformity with Soviet sources, resulting from an extensive review of Soviet military journals, 1974- 1978. The single most important source is the book, Engineer Support of Combined Arms Combat by Pliaskin, Lysukhin and Ruvinskii 1972, as translated by the author of this paper.
